Cancer patients who undergo certain chemotherapies often encounter painful tingling in their extremities which is called peripheral neuropathy. Patients who have to take chemotherapy for cancer treatment have to face multiple changes both physically and mentally. The chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy causes a tingling and numbness in the hands and the feet. It is one of the most common side effects of chemotherapies. It can last for years even after the chemotherapy treatment is over. However, a new research suggests that the antidepressant Cymbalta may be one the helpful drug in easing the pain induced by chemotherapy.
